We’re reaching the end of the new home inventory here in the wonderful new community of High Point in West Seattle. Phase II is still in the early stages of planning and not all of the developers have even been selected yet. You can’t expect any homes to be available in this new phase for probably 18 months.
So if you’ve been considering new construction and want a smartly Built GreenTM home – and also detest the thought of a commute from the suburbs – you need to email me and get over here for a tour. You can’t beat the views from some of the homes – as you can see here, this is last Thursday’s remarkable sunrise, as seen from my home office. I’ve lived in West Seattle for ten fabulous years and wouldn’t even consider moving away from this part of town. You need to check it out. You can’t beat the convenience to downtown, the freeways, and the airport. And you don’t ever have to LEAVE West Seattle, either, if you don’t want to. We have everything you need for great living, right here.
There are two resales here in the Redwood @ High Point subassociation (Polygon construction). There is one condo suite, 2 bedrooms and 1 3/4 baths on the top floor in the center building. Click here to see the listing information. There is also one townhome for sale. It is the most affordably priced multilevel home here – it is a three bedroom two and a half bath townhome with nearly 1,700 sq ft, and comes with a 2-car side-by-side garage, which is rare in this development. There is only one other house here with a 2-car garage – and it is listed at $599,950. This is also the floorplan I have, and I can tell you how roomy this home is, with a laundry room and the bedrooms all on the same floor, and a bonus room and a storage room off the garage, and a nearly 200 square foot deck for your outdoor entertaining (or in my case, gardening) pleasure. The seller is actually wanting to move to another townhome here in High Point, one that has a small yard. But he can’t make the move until he sells this townhome, which is bargain-basement priced at $384,950. I know he has done a lot of upgrades to this home since he moved in nearly a year ago and he is taking a loss on this beautiful home. This is a condominium here and the HOA dues run about $257 for this size of home.
So take a look at these homes for sale and come on out! Drop me a line (I get email on my mobile device). I would love to give you a tour of this Built Green community and the wonderful homes here. There’s nothing like talking to someone who has the personal experience of living here – I can tell you both the great things and a few of the drawbacks to living in this mixed-income community.

Feels so California for some reason. I love the cobblestone street.
One of the models – this home is still for sale I believe.
One of the many porous sidewalks here, allowing for better drainage and slowing down water runoff as it heads for Longfellow Creek.

A perfectly still morning allowed this great photo fo these city view homes and their reflection in the pond.

My deck garden as seen from the top floor. I dug up everything I wanted to keep from my quarter acre lot a mile east here and transplanted it to pots. Well, I had a lot of help – from my husband Steve and our friend Steve Richmond, of Garden Cycles.
